Tickering the Unstructured Universe

FT has profiled Monitor110, an attention data aggregator and filterer focused on hedge funds as its initial vertical.

The company, which is backed by Draper Fisher Jurvetson, will trawl through more than 40 million internet sources on behalf of its clients.

As Scott Lessing, COO for investment research at Citigroup, points out, “there may be more information value in online trends in the aggregate: 5,000 more web mentions of a product than the week before could be an important signal for an analyst covering the product’s manufacturer”.

Marshall Kirkpatrick has added Monitor110 to his Xmas wishlist.
